Aww! My Girl star Anna Chlumsky is a mom! The 32-year-old actress welcomed a baby girl today, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly.
This is baby number one for Anna and her husband, Shaun So. When it comes to what they decided to call their little girl, well -- I think you'll agree her name sounds pretty familiar.
Or at least it will certainly ring a bell if you happen to be a Kourtney Kardashian fan.
Yep, they called her Penelope Joan So -- so now it looks as though Anna has way more in common with the K-Dash crew than she ever dreamed.
But then again, maybe she has no clue who the Kardashians are. During her pregnancy, Anna indicated that she and her husband had a few names in mind and said, "We like things to be original so you're not confusing your kid for some other person."
Hmm. I doubt anyone will ever confuse her Penelope with Kourtney's -- but considering Kourt gave her baby the moniker a year ago, Penelope Scotland Disick will probably be the first baby that comes to mind as far as associating the name with the celebrity kid crowd goes. And if Anna followed them at all, she probably would've chosen something different -- because everyone is automatically going to assume she "stole" it from Kourt. (Ugh.)
Those Kardashians. They're such a bunch of trend setters. Even when it comes to baby names. (Though I highly doubt Kim has to worry about anyone copying North's name. Just sayin'.)
But even if it's not the most unique name anymore, Penelope is still pretty darn adorable, and there's certainly room for more than one little girl with that name, right?
Congrats to Anna and her husband -- and hopefully she won't waste any time in sharing a photo of their newest addition!
Do you like the name Penelope?
